Thanks, Rosa. Beautiful villages indeed. And the mother taking the two kids for a paddle just made it for me. Best wishes, Mark

This is such a lovely photo Mark :)

So quintessentially English in every sense..It exudes a feeling of the good life with simple joys and pleasures, just as it was when I was a child!

I note that it is one of your personal favourites..It is now one of mine too...Thank you for sharing this delightful image!

Thank you very much, Jim, for those very kind words. One of the things that I like about it is that the people are so obviously of 'today' (the mother's cap and sunglasses) and the houses are mellow centuries-old buildings, whilst the activity of taking kids for a paddle in the stream is somehow timeless. Best wishes from Cyorus: Mark
